after releasing karlheinz essl performance with klaus burger, we have decided to release something more easy listening, like poros, although it was very good music in our perspective the very same way too. it was something completely different. essl stuff was like something completely turned into real time improvisation with live electronics. poros was completely different, a very downtempo trip hop recording with some simple but efficient electronics, some very simple bass lines, a bit low fi b...

Nowadays many rock musicians are used to have side projects, where they include electronics. That's not something particulary new. We were already used to see phenomena like this in the 70s and the 80s, and it was exactly what happened with alex (aka zuramone), the drums player from the evora's (south-west of portugal in the south-west of europe) band "lotus mecanica". He was also drummer in the les baton rouge band and he is involved in another band with musicians from les baton rouge, great le...

this is officially the last xs records release. On December 9th, 2010 I made my way to the Essl Museum in search of the lost spirit of Advent. It was there that Agnes Heginger and Karlheinz Essl performed for the first time as a duo, developing an improvised musical dialogue 'out of the blue'. Somehow 'out of the blue' fit perfectly for me because I was looking for a way out of my melancholy December mood...

As a netlabel, we've always been worried about bringing music with an ascending quality to people, although some our releases seem a bit controversial, since we try to get as much diversity as possible. This month, we can say that we are extremely proud to release Karlheinz Essl's and Klaus Burger's duo ESSL.BURGER. Not only because Karlheinz Essl is one of the most relevant figures of nowadays improvised music with live electronics in Europe, but also because we believe that together with our p...

With eyes wide open. Like in a reawakening. A strange awake that repeats itself every night; every passing day, or so it seems. Like a virtual experience; or maybe not. Maybe it is just a normal but scary awakening. ... "Filled With Light". "Filled With Light" awakens us in two different ways. The first, because it is only an EP which is part of an album yet to be released; the second, because in that album, poetry, a core element always present in Subterminal's work, makes an eulogy to digital ...

AL has found GO in a universe far away from here, l. where sun would come. AL was listening to Rihm and Shnittke and GO was listening to Alvo Noto and Murcof. It was love and hate at first sight. From this first and unique encounter there have gotten to the history this 11 digits, in shape of sound. For some people incompreensible, for other ones weird. For them, just ALGO.
